          Hi. Do you have an outside pool area? I have noticed from some of the traveler images that there is what seems like indoor pools, however is there an outside pool area with umbrellas etc. I have seen a traveler image which seems to highlight a walkway leading to a pool area with umbrellas, however Im not sure if this is part of the hotel. Please advise. Thanks

          Riads are pretty small compared to hotels as such.Small plunge pool inside. Google macromama blog which tells you where you can visit an hotel for the day and prices.If you choose riad Africa you will be made most welcome.
